Family Photography

Family photography is like meeting a host of new friends every time. The challenge sometimes lies in getting all members of the family relaxed and working well together. Once this happens – and it usually does quite quickly – then my task is to capture those exchanges of emotions, those looks and smiles and cuddles between family members that speak silent volumes of their wonderful family relationships. I have a young family of my own, and I am part of a large family (we were six siblings in all!), and I feel rewarded every time the photographs I deliver bring smiles to my clients. Many stay in touch. Many have asked me to share time and again in their special family occasions. I may be working, but this is truly a privilege.

Child Photography

Child photography is just the best of fun. It takes me back to my own childhood, the fun and laughter of larking about with my siblings and family, and the joy of discovery when I played around with my first camera. That sense of childlike enjoyment of dressing up and posing in front of a camera has never left me and I love sharing it with the families that ask me to provide them with gorgeous portraits of the children. Whether we work outdoors, or in my studio, the session passes in the blink of an eye, the camera clicking away all the time, the child relaxing, chatting, having fun, being themselves, speaking to the camera with their eyes. It really doesn’t feel like work at all!

Professional Headshots

Professional portrait photography and headshots call for a different approach. Here the challenge is to help my client feel relaxed and at ease, to forget that there is a camera and to have them communicate non-verbally to me exactly the message they want to convey to their clients. I am curious, as most artists are curious, and enjoy having my clients share their particular stories with me, whether those stories tell about their business enterprise, or their aspirations as young actors. Together, we build the right portfolio of professional images for their needs.

Photo shoots based in Rainham, Kent

Jessica Richardson Photography is based in Rainham, in Kent, in the heart of the Garden of England, close to the beautiful landscape of the Medway Estuary, not far from the prettiness of the Weald of Kent, within easy reach of the openness of the North Downs. Set on the A2, the artery that joins London to the south coast, and served by excellent rail links, Rainham forms part of the Medway Towns and is easily accessible.


“Jessica was so good with my new born when we came to get our photos done. She’s really intuitive and baby comes first in the set up so when my little one got a bit cranky she was happy to wait whilst I breast fed and we carried on after. The picture quality is also excellent. We’ve had a number of her photos printed and framed and they are all really clear. We will definitely be using her again.

Thank you Jessica”

“Jessica is an exceptional photographer, she has an incredible ability of capturing the perfect shot, and is extremely patient with children and somehow manages to make everything work beautifully. I absolutely love the photos she took of my children, I will treasure them forever.”

Cheryl Chellaram


My family have had two photo shoots with Jessica and both times were great experiences with beautiful photos to show for them at the end. I have 3 small boys and Jessica is a complete natural with children. I was dreading getting them to engage but Jessica took charge and was amazing with the boys. She really knew how to get their attention and make them enjoy the experience, making the most of every opportunity and resulting in images to cherish forever. Would definitely recommend her.
